I got hungry while at a local Goodwin so I came home for lunch before going to visit another local thrift store. When I got home Carol suggested we go out for lunch so we did that. We had a nice lunch and then visited Salvation Army thrift store where I found these used books-
"Colter" a dog story by Rick Bass
"The Sleepwalkers" a trilogy by Herman Broch
So the day has gone by. Carol went to work for a couple of hours. I am watching birds and recovering from a big lunch meal. Existence keeps decaying. I feel like passing out, but maybe later.
" For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.
 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.
 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh." Isaiah 66:15-24
